"Lush and Lively Colored Pencil"
May 4-6, 2020

The New Jersey shore beckons you! Explore the possibilities that can literally be drawn from the point of a colored pencil- or watercolor pencil! With vast choices of surfaces, blending tools, and techniques, colored pencil yields a tremendous range of effects: shimmer and shine, saturated intensity, sparkling highlights, even fluid, transparent effects. This promises to be an enjoyable workshop in a beautiful, historic Victorian mansion near the Atlantic Ocean. Kristy is an experienced, upbeat, supportive instructor who is the author of two colored pencil books and the featured artist in four DVDs. She has taught over 200 workshops, readily making her students feel at home, whatever their experience.
